Hi, I don't understand Arabic at all, but I was able to reproduce your behaviour..

Waldo, maybe you can try this:

* Enable arabic keyboard in control center
* run a konsole in en_US.UTF-8 locale
* set locale to en_US.UTF-8 in case your shell overrides it
* turn on arabic keyboard
* start hitting "alt+j".. actually alt and any key.

If you keep hitting that combination, the cursor starts jumping backwards.

What I don't know is.. is the alt+key combination mean something specific for arabic input? If you set it on the english keyboard, it doesn't do anything.
